Effects of COVID 19 on Aquaculture, Aquaponics and Allied Businesses Webinar

Online

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an investigation was launched to capture the effects and impacts of the pandemic on U.S. aquaculture, aquaponics and allied businesses. Through the use of an online survey, to be distributed quarterly throughout 2020, data was collected directly from industry. A majority of respondents to the survey have indicated that their farm or business has been impacted by COVID-19. Responses to the survey for Q1 and Q2 reveal that the primary impacts are on sales and marketing of products, labor effects, and challenges with production. The effects and impacts recorded to date will likely have longer term implications for the aquaculture and aquaponics industries. Dr. van Senten is an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist at the Virginia Seafood Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Hampton, Virginia. His primary research focus is on quantifying the farm-level effects of the regulatory environment on U.S. aquaculture producers. In addition, he is also involved with evaluating economic impacts, the feasibility of emerging species for aquaculture, assessing the economic performance of new dietary formulations, ornamental aquaculture and business development, financial benchmarking of aquaculture farms, and aquaponics program development as part of the team at Virginia Tech.
